The 2017/18 competition will start with the points earned in the Gold Cup Finals (7th/8th October 2017) and conclude with the Crockfords Cup final (1st/2nd September 2018).
Current points table
|Gold Cup||Autumn Congress||Prem League||P-a-B Teams||National Pairs||Easter Pairs||Spring Fours||Summer Meeting Swiss Pairs||4 Star Teams||Crockfords Cup||Total|
|29th=||Janet De Botton||4||4|
* - Points for 1st and 2nd place shared as the two pairs tied (corrected from an earlier version of the table)
Players will gain points based on finishing in the top places of the most prestigious events on the EBU calendar.
The player accumulating the most place points in the year will win the prize of £1000. In the event of a tie the prize will be shared.
For the purposes of the competition the 'year' is events which finish in the period 1st October to 30th September (some events may start before that date).
While this competition will appeal to those battling for the top prize, we also hope that it will prompt some friendly rivalries amongst those lower down the points list as they vie for bragging rights and aim to see their name listed alongside the game's elite.
The tournaments and points awarded are as follows:
|Premier League (Division 1)||16||8||4||2|
|Four Stars Team - Summer Meeting||8||4||2||1|
|National Point-a-Board Teams||6||3||2||1|
|Swiss Pairs - Summer Meeting||12||6||3||2||1|
|Guardian Trophy - Easter Congress||6||3||2||1|
|Two Star Pairs - Autumn Congress||6||3||2||1|
In the event of a tie for any placings, the points for that and the lower position will be shared, even if the tie is split for other purposes, with the exception of the final award in which case the lowest award will be given to both pairs/teams. For example, a tie for 2nd and 3rd place in the National Pairs would see both pairs awarded 3 points - (4+2)/2. If two pairs tied for 4th in the National Pairs, all four players would receive 1 point.
